Check the right hand corner, this IS in the Religion Forum.
And ya know what, Driftless? We are discussing "serious NEWS" here...
The word "Gospel" comes from the Greek, Euangelion -- meaning "Good NEWS." It is "THE GOOD NEWS" of Jesus Christ...the Son of God who entered time-space as a person, lived the perfect life, we could not; died the death to receive God's wrath and His judgment for OUR sins; and thus, reconciled us to the Father as the Mediator of the New Covenant.
Those, then, who trust the TRUE Jesus Christ in a living relationship that begins on THIS side of death...and know the "ONLY TRUE" God (John 17:3) HAVE eternal life already (John 3:36; 5:24).
That is good news...that is GREAT NEWS!
We are forgiven...We are adopted in Christ...HE is our righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30) -- the righteousness we could never "earn" or "merit."
This is, indeed, the most serious -- the most sober -- NEWS anyone could ever receive...and share...in the history of ALL the world!
You will drift into death one day, Driftless...as you head toward that encounter with the Living God...please remember this online convo.
Then what’s it doing on the serious news forum? All holy-rollers try to keep off serious news forums please. Do your soul-saving in private.
